yourself, your opponent will do it for you. romney let the president's early attacks on his personal wealth and business background go largely unanswered. romney's campaign argued after a long and expensive primary, they had to choose how to spend at the time, limited funds, and they had to claim it was better than defenses of his personal record. in the end, obama beat romney by ten points. on the economic values question that was this, which candidate is more in touch with people like you. 53% said romney's polauolicies d favor the rich. just 10% said that about the president's policies. and romney, the first republican nominee in the history of our poll to go into a convention with his personal rating under water and campaign with a painful number, just 47% of voters viewing him positively. the obama campaign was also able to get more bang for the buck because they bought ads early and they were careful about where to buy the ads. in the last week, they paid $5 fif 50 for a single ad in raleigh. the romney campaign had to pay $2,665 for the same ad. >> lesson two, the republican brand ne
. >> who have been vetted? >> romney, paw lenty and trying to vet bloomberg. >> none of them. >> obama changed the entire dynamic. it is a changed year, sir. we desperately need a game changing pick. none of these middle aged white guys are game changers. >> ed harris is just remarkable. john mccain didn't always come across so well in the book. times when he was fumbling through papers, going with bernanke and paulson about the melt down that seems every bit as disconnected. this movie he comes across as 100% grade a all american hero. why did he make that decision? >> i admire john mccain and admire especially early john mccain and was a fan for years and i think he found himself in a very tough pickle in the beginning of this story. obama was surging in the polls. it was all kind of going to a very tough place when he had to make the decision. i felt i want the audience to be in his shoes and look at the dilemma he faced. especially when people say you can take this risky choice or you can lose. i want people to relate with them at that moment. casting ed harris is part of it. i thi
or self deport. >> self deportation by undocumented workers was not by itself responsible for romney's dismal showing among hispanics, but certainly greased the skids. for which romney would have liked to have had aa mulligan, there was this. >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon him, who believe that they are a victim. >> reporter: romney called his remarks completely wrong. they also caused the deepest self inflicted wound of the election. on the flip side -- >> he will be the next vice president of the united states. >> romney's vp day may well have been the best moment of his campaign, the selection of congressman paul ryan excited conservatives in a way romney himself had not. how many moments are there in an hour and a half? the president lost all of them in the first debate. pictures tell the story of a man who phoned it in, panicking his supporters and providing an opening for romney. and, finally, the top three moments of the election best described aas history-making politics. a supreme co
community used to be. in some ways you can see that in the political views of george romney versus the political views of mitt romney. and third, i think that in the republican house conference john boehner is far more worried about 35 to 70 of his most right-wing members for now anyway, especially going up to the vote on january 3rd for speaker than he is about the business community. but i also think this false balance is part of it, that the business community, like some in the media, seem to think you have to pretend to be equidistant from the parties even though the parties are not equidistant from the center or inclined to compromise, as you showed, one to the other. president obama has given a lot more ground, sometimes to the consternation of his own party, than the republicans have. >> when i watch the sort of political strategy of a group like fix the debt or just many folks in general, many in the media, the animating underlying impulse seems to be a belief that what will lead to compromise is kind of a spirit of cooperation, everyone being nice to each other. so when pe
, surprisingly, mitt romney, because even though i'm sure he would rather be president, at least he doesn't deal with the mess himself. next on my list, rich people. we don't know what the deal looks like but you can bet they're on top in some way. they always do. and finally, toure, speak for yourself. i feel like a winner because as much as it is lame at work today, i would rather be here than in congress where i was trying to be so there you go. >> that's one way of spinning it. >> it's a -- i'm going to just kind of duck the question here. i don't want to get in to the winners and losers thing but a comment because i'm trying to piece it together over the last few days and months and i'm honestly and we'll see the final count tour contours of this an first reaction is what was the last year and a half all about? it looked like a pivot point in the presidency at the end of the deet ceiling showdown and the instinct in the wake of the 2010 mid terms is to strike some kind of big bipartisan grand bargain and be a compromiser in chief and looked like the lesson of the white house in the showdow
, and they brought us whole binders full of women. >> binders full of women. mitt romney's off hand remark at the second presidential debate set off a social media frenzy. remember on facebook, twitter, and even spawned this popular tumblr page from texts from hillary to clint eastwood's chair. these were just some of the many moments in 2012 in which politics went viral. joining us now for a look back is politico's patrick gavin. one day left in 2012. let's look back and talk about the binders full of women. seemingly trivial moment that may have impacted the election in a big way. >> yeah. you know, i really think that's how twitter has changed politics. you know, i think that a lot of campaigns might think that a comment like that, you would hope, that perhaps somebody was going to get a beer from the frig and might have missed it, but what twitter does is captures these moments that could maybe otherwise get overlooked and focuses the nation's attention. that was the case with the binders full of women comment. romney was not able to live that one down, especially on-line. >> take a li
gingrich was saying, there's no future for kid in a classroom. >> there's a coalesces behind romney. >> who better at this juncture. >> we don't have to wait, it can begin this year, november 6th i need your vote. >> the supreme court upheld the constitutionality of the affordable care act. >> it shouldn't be called obamacare anymore, obama's health care tax. the only thing you left out of that wrap is just like greece. >> the first time an attorney general to be held in contempt. >> and the vote that the house republicans want is a political vote. >> they played a bad hand, right now it's going to be a witch hunt. if you get more then it becomes intervention. >> the water has just now breached over the sand dunes. >> hurricane sandy a superstorm meteorologists are calling a once in a lifetime occurrence. the whole coast is devastated. >> the number of ambulances to move these children is remarkable. >> and lost homes in many forms-- ♪ ♪ >> andrew breitbart died this morning, he was 43. he was a publisher, an activist and a commentator, but that says almost nothing about this force of
after benefit cuts doesn't look good. >> this was something even mitt romney understood, who is kind of the source of a lot of the problems of the republicans having now with their image. mitt romney was, you know, very careful about social security. in the primaries he tried to outflank rick perry on the left on social security. so, yeah, yeah, republicans don't want to be seen as the people who are taking money away from old people while defending millionaire's tax cuts. they're very careful about that. >> the problem here is that these debates cannot happen simultaneously for republicans. they can't do social security, medicare reform, and cuts while they're extending or pushing for extension of tax breaks on the wealthiest. it doesn't work politically. if they want to do those two things, they have to be separated from extending tax rates from the top percent. >> they can't do it now, but could they do it on the dead death limit? will we satisfy sea the same fight return in 30, 60 days? >> yes. we're going to see it on the debt limit. we're going to see it on the continuing resol
himself and his reputation a lot of damage as the vice presidential nominee running with mitt romney. he had this rnc speech that was basically packed with lies. he got on the debate stage with joe biden and i think biden definitely got the better of him. i think even republicans who maybe didn't see biden wiping the floor with him quite the way that i did, felt a little dispoupted. they have little respect for joe biden's intellect, they thought paul ryan would come in and wipe the floor with him. that definitely didn't happen. interestingly, paul ryan has been largely absent. i mean, really, almost completely absent and silent during the fiscal cliff negotiations. so what do you think we're going to see out of him in 2013? >> certainly he's not where he wanted to be, which is working out of the white house, but, you know, i think he has been -- you're right he hasn't been maybe very vocal in terms of making press statements but he's somebody speaker john boehner looked it, when you're in the capitol, he's in huddles with other lawmakers and they definitely still respect. the idea that
capital gains taxes. that came up with mitt romney. a lot of his taxes come from capital gains. those are investments that affect capital gains. republicans and democrats told us there's a discussion of adding a new capital gains rate for the wealthy. that's a big deal, that's something republicans have never talked about before in the past. but it's something that has been on the table during these negotiations. i was able to find that out today. we don't know if that will be in the final deal but it's something to watch for. there's a lot more on this table, i think, than people realize. >> thank you very much. appreciate it. >> you got it. >>> hillary clinton is in the hospital tonight. the concern, a blood clot that's developed. we'll have the latest next. yea.

or the top 2% who have done phenomenally well, while their effective tax rate, as mitt romney reminded us by not releasing his tax returns, is extremely low. so to my mind, what this deficit reduction debate is about is asking the wealthiest people, the large corporations to help us with deficit reduction and give a break for a change to the middle class and working families. >> as you say, one that would mean less money for seniors with the social security adjustment is off the table, are you more optimistic about getting a deal done. >> we still have a long way to go. >> what do you see as the major sticking point? >> one of the sticking pointing, what the republicans want to do is continue the 2010 agreement on lower estate tax rates, which means, chris, $120 billion tax break over a ten-year period for the top 0.2 of 1%. they get $120 billion tax break. and people come forward and say we're very serious about deficit reduction. third area that we have to look at, the president wanted, as you recall a few weeks ago, $1.6 trillion in new revenue. we're now down to, as i understand it, a

a deal given that for 215 of them, the constituency they represent are mitt romney's? >> i think this is the problem. where most people follow a presidential election and don't realize what happens in each of the districts. what republicans have done a very good job of in the past ten years or past two driklecycles governor's races, where they've won all the governor's races, redistricted by controlling legislatures and governorships, and they have the ability now to make very safe republican districts, where as opposed to having what we had was about 40 years of democratic control in the house, you could see a decade, at least, of republican control, perhaps, because of the fact that they are, or at least make it tougher for democrats to take back over the house. now, we crunched the numbers as well a few weeks ago to say there's something -- there is a vast majority of these folks have won with 60% or more in those districts. >> yes, remarkable. why compromise? >> yeah, why compromise? you know, it's just funny to me, because when you think about the fact that nothing's gotten
that republicans for cutting spending. you heard mitt romney criticize president obama because he's not spending enough on ships, which we don't need, and not staying long enough in the war zones. the republicans' view of spending is very particular one. secondly, as far as the american people are concerned, people in their districts, gee, if they represent districts in new jersey and new york they want more spending. you know, people -- if you ask them they want government pending they say no. do you want to cut medicare? no, not that. how about firefighters? people boast of cutting government. when was the last time you heard them cut fire department or cut down on snow removal? in fact the republicans tend to be opposed to spending in general. when it comes to particular spending, remember paul ryan acknowledging he was seeking to get the stimulus money that he was denouncing. but in any case, it's not the democratic position we should put all of the increased revenue into spending. by the way, i believe much of government spending is very important. there are things that we need for the qual

. it was irresponsible through the election. i think republicans thought that mitt romney could win and they would approach the fiscal cliff differently. democrats obviously hoped the president would win and they could do this at the last minute this is the way washington has operated now but the biggest problem isn't the lack of compromise it isn't the fact that they're doing this at the last minute. that we're still not serious about reforming spending and these entitlement programs. gregg: especially the entitlements. steve hayes, thanks very much. >> thanks, gregg. heather: coming up, big news to report about a celeb couple. i know gregg is waiting for this one. gregg: i'm so cynical about this. heather: kim kardashian and rapper con quite west -- can west getting ready for patter of little feet. gregg: 2012 with minutes taking away before we ring in the new year. thousands packing times square in new york city gearing up for a big party there. ♪ @ ♪ sing polly wolly doodle all the day ♪ ♪ hah @ gregg: the house of representatives is in session right now. they're debating the so-called
